    The man who rescinded the MLK Day holiday and cost his state Super Bowl XXVII.

    The man who funneled state funds into his car dealership.

    Must've been Yab's favorite politician. He wasn't prejudiced — he hated everybody. Jews, black people, women, you name it.

    A great American.

    I think my Alma Mater would have hosted a Super Bowl while I was writing for the student paper if it wasn't for that used car dealer.

    That redneck fucked me over on an entirely separate level.

    Shouldn't this be a good riddance thread instead of a RIP thread?

    Who was the lady with the beehive that replaced good ol' Evan?

    Public Enemy's By The Time I Get To Arizona is running through my head right now. Great jam.

    Ev once hosted a group of visiting Japanese business leaders who were interested in expanding their operations into Arizona.

    The next morning, Ev was keynote speaker at a chamber of commerce meeting.

    He opened his speech with, "Damn, it's good to see some round eyes again!" Honest to fuck.

    He should have stuck to selling Pontiacs.
